For any of you who purchase Papertrey Ink stamp sets, do you save the clear boxes the sets come in? I just cannot bring myself to throw these boxes away. It finally occurred to me that these boxes are the perfect size for a card set. I am sure everyone else has already figured this out - I am just kind of slow ;-)
So I decided to use the colors from the current Raspberry Suite Color challenge for a card set for my sister. Whenever she comes to visit, she usually takes most of the cards I have made. But I haven't seen her for some time, so I suspect she needs some new cards.
First I am going to show each of the cards, and then I will show the box all assembled at the end.
Here are the colors for the challenge:
I just got the Papertrey Ink Giga Guidelines set, and I just had to give it a try!
For this second card, the sentiment was from Giga Guidelines as well.
I also just decided to get the Mega Mixed Messages set. Okay - how did I ever live without it?? It has every sentiment you could ever need! The sentiments on the next card is from that set.
I thought my sister would like a little crocheted flower card in her set. And I just love stringing glass beads onto twine for a little something extra! The sentiment on this card is also from Mega Mixed messages.
For this next card, I used Everyday Button Bits. I love that set!
Finally I thought she needed a butterfly card with some swirls and bling!
I put a decorative band and a little tag envelope on the box, and then I decorated a little tag to fit in the envelope.
I can't wait to send this to her. She will love this set!
Thanks for Looking!
